Future Says New Song “I Won” Featuring Kanye West Will Empower Women

After watching the video of the three elderly women reading Kanye West’s lyrics from Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love (Remix),” it may seem like the Chicago emcee’s rhymes are not appealing to the ladies, at least not the senior ones. According to Future, Kanye’s contribution to the upcoming Honest album will provide empowerment to all women.

The song titled “I Won” presents Future and Kanye addressing their respective relationships with fiancés Ciara and Kim Kardashian. Hitfix.com captured some quotes from the Atlanta artist speaking about the track while at SXSW.

“When you have songs like that, they empower women,” said Future. “I just feel like I want to big up women just in general, from my lady to his lady, to all women, to make sure they get their light on them and just knowing they’re important.”

Honest is scheduled for release on April 22. It also features Pharrell, Pusha T, Wiz Khalifa, Drake, and Andre 3000. “I Won” is expected to be released as a single.

“That’s rare when you get a Kanye verse back in one day, so you know it’s one of them records when he does the verse and sends it back in 24 hours. That’s the icing on the cake with the album,” said Future.
